Mauella, We had the same oncotype the first time!
Since the lump came out in chunks, they could not accurately stage me. I also had a second lump.
I loved, loved, loved my reconstruction. After radiation, my radiated side is very tight, a bit hard, and a big higher, though no one other than me notices. That being said, I have always seemed to produce a LOT of scar tissue, and MO says he has never had a patient in 20 years whose reconstructed breast turned that hard after radiation. He comments on it every visit! I think most women do not have the issues I have. I had all nodes, including intramammary and supraclavicular radiated, even after ALND. Different ROs may have different plans.
Buttons, sorry you are dealing with this again. What is their plan this time??
